Egyptian election: Polls close after second day of vote

16 January 2014 Last updated at 02:36 GMT

Polls have closed in Egypt after a second and final day of voting on a new constitution.

It was seen as a referendum on the ousting last July of President Mohammed Morsi.

Many of his supporters called for a boycott because they are angry at his treatment and the decision to declare his Muslim Brotherhood.

A yes vote would likely see the defence minister in the army-backed government, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, launch a bid to become president.

Orla Guerin reports from Cairo.
